Though the Bolder Boulder is an annual Memorial Day race, now in its 30th year, it is anything but repetitive.
While the experience is new every year for those involved, in order to keep the race itself fresh for participants, the organizers of the event have made some major changes to the race-day format in recent years and this year is no exception.
Last year tag timing was introduced. This entailed placing tags on each racer's shoe so that their times could be easily calculated at the start and finish of the race, as well as at each mile. The method worked but had some problems so the folks in charge of the Bolder Boulder have come up with a few refinements.
